Wings on King is an important project that is collecting bird data from over 50 fixed survey sites across King Island.  But while King Island’s small population (of people) help to keep it unspoilt, it also means we are short of skilled and unskilled birders and bird enthusiasts to help collect this data. We need help.  Visitors are all warmly welcomed.
